Upcoming Activities or Events

Here find details of the upcoming shooting activities and related events at NOSA, the family-friendly Thunder Bay rifle and pistol shooting club.

There will be more club shoots or activities announced here during the year as arrangements are finalized, so check this page periodically for updates.



NOSA Outdoor Shooting at Nolalu Range -- 04 May Through 29 Oct 2017

Starting 04 May this year, the Nolalu Range is normally available to all members between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. on four days of the week (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) during these months.

During many of these NOSA hours you might be shooting alone. But there are certain periods when you are more likely to enjoy the shooting company of your fellows. Typically there are more folks present during the day on Sundays, or during the evening on Thursdays. Save some gas and car pool out there with fellow members.

The Thursday evening gathering is informal and known as the Thursday Night Irregulars, but all NOSA members are welcome. Folks tend to brew coffee there and bring home-baked goods to share. Don't be shy about your hardware. There will be lots of neat guns to admire, and sometimes shoot, but also lots of practical iron. Always great fun, and all NOSA members are encouraged to come out.

Safety Note: Remember that only the 25 metre pistol range is approved for handguns.



NOSA Indoor Shooting at Arnone Range -- 20 Sep 2017 through 27 Apr 2018

The fall to spring indoor shooting schedule begins at Arnone Range:
--- on Wednesday, 20 Sep 2017 for Junior Shooters;
--- on Friday, 22 Sep 2017 for Adult Shooters.

Be sure to attend regularly and practice up for the traditional NOSA indoor shoots. And it is always good fun talking and joking with your fellow members on these evenings.

The club normally shoots indoors on these evenings until the end of April:
Wednesdays for Juniors from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Fridays for Adults from 6:00 p.m. to 8:50 p.m.

Note: the earlier start time for Adult shooters is intended to allow more persons a reasonable period for shooting. Those that arrive and start early should do their shooting in a timely manner and return upstairs for refreshments and socializing; they must respect the needs of fellow members arriving later and not try to shoot for extended periods or the entire evening.
